Winds of Change

These two mice are huddled together against the cold Autumn wind.  This painting is a commission and shows how love gets us through hard times. The mice are looking toward the winds of change and their tails are entwined.

Autumn is a great time for painting the garden with all the seed pods and twisted leaves. I love berries too. Part of the commission was to paint milkweed and black eyes susans but I have never seen milkweed before so I enjoyed researching it. What complicated seed pod structure it has! I took me ages to figure out what was going on in the photographs.

  1. ... and you caught the seeds of milkweed with their little soft comet tails so right. Beautiful.
